SUNDAY Trinity Streets

On Sunday afternoon we act as the church for people experiencing homelessness with a service that is offered alternately by different churches and is followed with a meal. Many of the neighbors do not feel welcome in the regular Sunday services in town. By setting up the center as a communal place to worship, with a service, music, meal and a collaboration with other spiritual services’ providers we “walk the walk” of loving our neighbors as ourselves. There are usually 60-70 people who come to Sunday services.

  • 2:45pm – Doors open

  • 3:00pm – Worship service

  • 3:40pm – Lunch

  • 4:30 – Doors close

MONDAY - Woman to Woman

While operating Trinity Center it was obvious to us that there are fewer services offered to homeless women, who are traditionally more vulnerable and at risk in the population. Since 2005, Trinity Center has operated a Monday program for homeless women, creating a safe and welcoming environment away from the streets and offering a free clothing. As in all other days of operation, a breakfast and case-management services are offered as well. We receive mail for neighbors and offer mail check 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. weekdays.
